THE EUROPEAN WAR, 1914-1*5. 


For King and Country. 

Carnoustie and District 


Now's the day, and now's the hour, 
See the front of battle lour. 

Liberty's in every blow ! 
Let us do, or die." 


'A year ago, when the sky was fair, 

We didn't think much of the barrack square, 

And now it is useless to count the cost, 

Or reckon the tale of the years we lost ; 

All that we cherished from day to day, 

Loafing along by the easiest way, 

Is shrivelled and seared by a scorching flame, 

Kitchener called — and the Army came." 

Oer., Glasgow. 

Our hearts, our hopes, are all with thee, 
Our hearts, our hopes, our prayers, our tears, 
Our faith triumphant o'er our fears, 
Are all with thee ! Are all with thee ! "
